a blockbuster event friday into saturday across the northeast potentially bringing not one but two feet of snow. >> make it one of the most powerful winter storms to hit the area in years. >> governor christie is lashing out at a former white house doctor, who says the governor is so heavy she's afraid he'll die in office. >> my children my 12-year-old son comes to me last night and says "dad, are you going to die?" she should shut up. iran claimed it decoded footage from a downed u.s. drone. >> surprising about-face from lance armstrong, admitted cycling cheater now planning to cooperate with anti-doping officials. something you don't see in brooklyn. >> goat disoriented. all that -- >> hey, i just met you. this is crazy. but here's my number so call me, may "b." >> barrett, you start. >> would you marry me? >> no. >> and all that matters. >> federal reserve says it has
7:01am
fixed what it calls a temporary vulnerability which allowed hackers to briefly breach one of its internal websites. >> saying the hackers could have made up with as much as negative $14 trillion. >> on "cbs this morning." >> there's a must smartphone app that lets you communicate with your house plants. the app is called i will die alone. welcome to "cbs this morning." while you were sleeping in the west a massive search is under way in southern california a former police officer wanted for double murder is accused of shooting two police officers earlier this morning, killing one of them. >> it is happening in river side outside of los angeles. bill whitaker is following the breaking news. >> a massive manhunt is on the
7:02am
way for an ex-lapd police officer targeting police officers and their families. he's accused of shooting to death a river side police officer earlier this morning and wounding two others. just a short while ago the river side police department gave this update. >> two river side police officers had been shot both officers were transported to a local hospital, where one of them was pronounced deceased. the second officer is currently in surgery and his condition is unknown. the suspect did flee the location and we were in the process of trying to identify the suspect and apprehend them. >> the suspect is 33-year-old christopher jordan dorner. he was fired from the lapd in 2008 for allegedly making false statements. he is accused as well of shooting a young couple to death in orange county this weekend. the slain young woman, monica
7:03am
qwan, was fuan, was the daughter of an lapd officer. the murders are believed to be in revenge for his firing. dorner posted a manifesto online saying this is my last resort. the lapd suppressed the truth and it's led to deadly consequences. >> bill whitaker thanks. every los angeles police officer has been put on alert. john miller former head of the lapd major crimes decision joins us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> what else do we know? >> as mr. whitaker pointed out, this is a manhunt like none other we have ever seen in los angeles. you're not just looking for a criminal who is trying to avoid detection. you're looking for a highly trained naval officer who has been through the lapd academy, who is tactically proficient, who knows where everyone lives, who understands the codes and procedures of the lapd and who has promised to strike and i'm quoting from his manifesto of
7:04am
"violence of action" that's a military term for striking in such a way you move with swiftness and surprise and overwhelming force that by the time it's happened it's too late to fight back so he's really thrown down an incredible gauntlet here and they have deployed every resource that the lapd has, including some highly special ones that used to come under my command to track this man down and deal with this. >> why is he doing this or did he just snap? >> well he's displaying the classic traits of a psychopath which is he's blaming everyone else for his problems not taking responsibility, yet acting in a very very calculating way to lash out. he was, he made a complaint against his training officer saying that she kicked a suspect during an arrest and that that was unnecessary. that went to a board of rights. he was found to be lying about that by the board of rights. captain quan who was retired from the lapd, was now working as a lawyer defended him in that board of rights. so everybody was on the board of
7:05am
rights, the two captains his own lawyer the civilian, the chief, who signed off on it the former chief he has a long hit list of people. of course all of them are being guarded. what you're seeing here is every time he goes to one of his targets, and runs into their bodyguards, he engages them and there's this shoot-out. >> very dangerous situation. john miller, thank you. if you know people on the east coast they're probably gearing up for a major snowstorm, two fronts, one in the midwest and one in the east. they are expected to merge in the northeast tomorrow. look at that forecasters are predicting some historic snow levels. some parts of new england are bracing for up to two feet and a blizzard watch is up this morning, you can see there in much of southern new england. so people worried this morning. cbs news learned this morning that american airlines is close to a merger with u.s. airways, creating the world's largest airline. cbs news travel editor peter
7:06am
greenberg is in las vegas. peter, good morning. what's the significance of this deal, if it happens? >> well, you said it charlie, the world's largest airline with a market valuation of about $10 billion, it will still be called american airlines. it will still be based in dallas. the only thing unresolved is the final hierarchy of the corporate board as well as the executive officers of the newly merged airline. >> peter passengers out there are saying this doesn't sound like a good deal for me a bigger airline. how does it end up for passengers? >> well, it is going to be a bigger airline but remember history tells us that bigger airlineless don't stay bigger for that much longer. they tend to cut capacity they tend to cut roots domestically and go for higher yielding international routes so look for that to happen and the real bottom line here now is whether the unions are going to get along. remember they signed secret deals with u.s. airways, they wanted to work with them as well. the pilots already met with each other, meaning u.s. air pilots met with american airlines pilots, flight attendants worked with flight attendants to work
7:07am
out seniority. who is going to operate on which routes. >> peter what happens if this deal doesn't go forward, what happens if it falls through and what does it mean for americans? >> america has always taken the position they wanted to come out of bankruptcy as a standalone carrier but the creditors and bond holders didn't like it thought bigger was better. american and u.s. air actually only overlap on 13 different routes so american when they filed for bankruptcy had $5 billion in the bank to begin with. they could easily come out as a standalonal though their credit and bond holders don't want it they have their employment agreements in place, go to the bankruptcy yunlg sean say we have a restructuring plan and merger in place. it's unlikely although it can happen that the bankruptcy judge will overturn that. >> peter greenberg thank you. late last night the white house gave into growing pressure t released classified information to congress on the targeted killing of
7:08am
american-born terrorists. the move comes hours after john brennan heads to capitol hill for his confirmation hearing as cia director. bill plante is at the white house. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning and good morning out west. members of congress have been trying for several years to see the classified justice department's legal opinions by justified the killing of anwar uh-uhawe al awlaki and others on terrorism. last night the president gave in to the pressure. the man who will feel the heat on this today is john brennan, the president's counterterrorism adviser, who has been nominated to head the cia. brennan testifies before the 15-member senate intelligence committee, including republican susan collins. >> in many cases we're talking about hardened terrorists but we do need to have a different approach when an american citizen is involved. >> reporter: democrats are equally concerned, they want to
7:09am
know brennan's role in the white house-approved drone attacks on terrorists who are american citizens. on wednesday, senator ron wyden threatened to pull out all the stops to get the justice department's legal opinion which the president released to the committee but which will not be made public. >> the information that is kept secret is kept secret for national security reasons, not to keep it from the american people. >> reporter: the drone program puts president obama in an awkward position as a senator and presidential candidate, he criticized the bush administration anti-terrorism policy of enhanced interrogation or torture of suspects. >> this administration acts like violating civil libertyies is the way to enhance our security. it is not. there are no shortcuts to protecting america. >> reporter: now the obama administration is also under fire for what critics believe is acting outside the law. >> we have a president who is doing something that even president bush didn't do which is to order the killing of a
7:10am
united states citizen without clear evidence of an immediate attack. >> reporter: a lot of pressure from democrats as well as republicans to release these documents and today's release seems time to avoid embarrassment for brennan's nomination nomination. his hearing begins shortly before noon. in written responses to senate questions he says the administration is constantly refining the standards from the drone strikes. norah, charlie? >> bill plante thanks. cbs news senior national security analyst juan zarate worked with john brennan during the administration of president george w. bush. ron, good morning. >> good morning. >> what's the hardest question brennan will get and what will he say in answer? >> well i think, charlie he's going to face two types of questions. the first will be a question about his past involvement in policies that were controversial during the bush administration. keep in mind john brennan is a long time cia professional was at the right hand of georgia
7:11am
tenet, the cia director after 9/11 so he'll face questions from democrats about his prior role in detention and rendition policies. he's also going to face these questions that bill plante was just talking about, questions about the targeting of american citizens, the authority to target with lethal force, and what his role and the administration administration's views are on precisely those policies. >> juan as you know president obama was concerned about secrecy in 2009. he ordered the release of those documents about controversial interrogation policies under the presidency of george w. bush but then he kept this memo secret. isn't it hypocritical of president obama to keep the secret, given what he's said in the past? >> well i happen to believe it was probably a wrong decision to release the 2009 memos. i think certainly there's a little bit of hypocrisy here norah, to use your terminology but i think the reality is there are reasons for keeping some of this information secret reasons so that the enemy doesn't understand what our thinking is
7:12am
what our processes are, what evidence is required to actually substantiate a targeted strike for example. so there are reasons to keep it secret but certainly the administration is under pressure to be more transparent especially targeting american citizens. >> juan it's not a secret to american people. the point of congress is saying the senate intelligence committee created to make sure government doesn't carry these things out they didn't get the memos and senator wyden said doesn't every american have the right to know when the government believes it's legal to kill americans? >> absolutely norah and the administration i think made a mistake here in not having congress involved earlier on especially when you're talking about an american citizen. that's the role of congress here, and i think one of the key questions that people have is how can the executive branch the president, be judge, jury and executioner of american citizens without outside process or oversight to monitor this. that's what the administration is dao trying to deal with, with
7:13am
the release of the memos to the senate. >> do you believe coming out of this the administration might change the policy of killing americans without explanation or analysis? >> well, i think, charlie, what's going to happen is you're going to continue to see an internal debate within the administration as to who should be subject to targeted strikes. there's controversy internationally about the legitimacy of the strikes, blowback in countries like yemen and pakistan questions about violations of sovereignty, and also charlie, importantly a question about what is al qaeda? al qaeda is changing as we speak. it's morphing it has its regional groups and the question of who is a member of al qaeda, what can be classified as a senior operational leader i think will continue to bedevil officials and continue to constrain who they likely target with lethal action. >> how dangerous is it for u.s. national security that we're flying these drones into yemen out of a base in saudi arabia? >> i think it's never good
7:14am
norah, to have a revelation of where we have our infrastructure to go after terrorists. that's a big problem. it also complicates our relationships with countries like saudi arabia which want to keep these things secret, and if we can't keep them secret they're not willing to work with us. but at the end of the day, these are platforms and techniques that are important to get at these terrorists that we can't reach in traditional ways. >> juan zarate thank you. if congress doesn't approve a budget deal in the next three weeks, billions of dollars in automatic spending cuts will go into effect. david martin shows us why it's already having a direct impact on our military. >> reporter: postponing the deployment of "truman" will save hundreds of millions of dollars but also leave the u.s. with only one in instead of the normal two aircraft carriers in the persian gulf at a time when the u.s. and iran appear to be on a collision course over its nuclear program.
7:15am
vice vice admiral mark foxxs the director of navy operations says lack of a carrier could make a difference in a crisis. >> what it does change is the opportunity to have additional capability immediately. there will be additional time distance associated with bringing another vessel over if it's required. >> reporter: defense secretary panetta warned that would be the least of it if the automatic budget cuts known as sequestration take effect at the beginning of march. the pentagon has to reduce spending by $46 billion in the remaining seven months of fiscal year 2013. >> if these cuts happen there will be a serious disruption in defense programs and a sharp decline in our military readiness. >> reporter: this army document says three-fourths of its combat brigades will have to delay their training for several months resulting in a failure to meet demands of the national military strategy by the end of this year. afraid it will have to take $18 billion out of its own budget
7:16am
the army has already stopped maintenance of 1,300 vehicles and 17,000 weapons. according to this document the air force would cut its overhauls of aircraft by one-third, with the result that some planes would have to be grounded. flying hours for air force pilots would be cut by 18%. >> it puts at risk our fundamental mission of protecting the american people. >> reporter: combat operations in afghanistan would not be affected by the cuts but the pull-out of $20 billion worth of equipment could be delayed. for "cbs this morning," david martin, the pentagon. it is time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. "the new york times" looks at internal e-mails that suggest jpmorgan chase executives knew about serious flaws with thousands of home loans, those loans then bundled and sold to investors. the documents allegedly showed the bank altered or dismissed critical reviews of troubled
7:17am
home loans to make them more appealing to investors. "the washington post" says five colleges gave data that was exaggerated to "u.s. news and world reports" college rankings closely watched by students looking for college. bucknell college, emery university, george washington university and tulane claimed they overstated high school rankings. widespread doping by some of australia's elite athletes. the australian crime commission linked it to organized crime. the banned drugs some of which were not tested for human use were given to entire teams in some cases. and "usa today" reports that a judge ruled transcripts in the chandra levy murder case remain sealed. prosecutors and lawyers for the convicted killer met twice in december behind closed doors. new information could undermine the testimony of a prosecution witness. the details have remained seals. and "daily mail" in britain

s they even skad the horror of several of their colleagues killed in algeria. i spoke with three men about the moment last month when terrorists attacked an oil fra silt these three men all work for the oil company bp. all witnessed the simultaneous assaults. frazier, a petroleum engineer was on a bus bound for nearby town. it had just pulled out of the main gate. >> i heard something, and my initial reaction was, oh know we've blown a tire. >> it sounded like a blown tire. >> yeah. and then i looked out the left-hand window and i saw dozens and dozens of red streaks pass the -- pass the left-hand side of the bus, and then -- >> you were under attack. >> yes. people started to scramble and then bullets starting to come through the front windshield. even was, as fast as they could,
7:30am
getting to where they could lay down in the walkway of the seats and get as flat as possible. i don't know. even was so calm. you become so calm. it wasn't how i thought i would have reacted at all. >> no screaming. >> no. it was very silent very organized. it was as if we had trained for it but we hadn't. you could hear bullets starting to hit the side of the bus, and it wasn't one, two, or three bullets. it was -- it was hundreds, just bam, bam, bam, bam bachl,m, on the side of the bus. >> they battled the militants for three hours. >> they saved our lives. they returned fire heavy, heavy, heavy gunfire. they stood by the bus and shot back and kept the terrorists from getting onto the bus. >> charlie you're the first to
7:31am
speak with them and get the inside details. it's an incredible story it's an incredible story knowing they're under attack and they're the target and they can hear the terrorists walking down the hall in one case and in three separate locations. it's really an incredible story. the interesting thing, we shot that interview in one three-hour time. they came from different places but our own matt glick was on ground for weeks trying to make a relationship with them to make them feel comfortable for telling the story so he deserves some of the credit for what you see in this interview. >> i look forward to it. >> you can see my entire interview with the former hostages sunday night on cbs. actress ashley judd hasn't decided if she's going to run for mitch mcconnell's seat. but they're not waiting. there's an online ad targeting
7:32am
judd. >> someone who knows what's good for us. >> obama care has done so much for us. >> someone who shares our values. someone from out of state who understands us. >> i don't know about hillbillies who golf. >> her own grandmother says she's a hollywood liberal, but isn't that what we need? ashley judd an obama-following radical hollywood liberal who's right at home here in tennessee. i mean kentucky. >> cbs news political director john dickerson. first i thought the election was over. now there are more campaigns again. why target someone who's not said she's even running for the seat? >> it doesn't push one hot button. it's an entire dashboard of hot buttons from liberal to -- one,
7:33am
conservatives complain about media working against them. this uses the media in their cause, this ad's going to get a lot of coverage even though it's just a web ad because she's a celebrity. so for american crossroads it improves their reputation. there's a button at the end. also for mitch mcconnell, the republican senator in kentucky this is a preemptive strike to knock back a possible opponent who would have -- create a stir in the race maybe makes her think twice about running. >> what's interesting about this is mitch mcconnell may very well face primary opposition and carl wloev has a lot to do with how the money's spent for american crossroads has said he will target in some cases republicans unlikely to win who may defeat people who have a real chance to win, especially incumbents. >> right. so there are a couple of things going on. for mitch mcconnell, there's an
7:34am
old cliche you run unopposed or run scared. why take her on? he would be able to run against her but it would be expensive and distracting and very unpredictable unpredictable. they want to keep that from happening because the republicans have a chance to pick up the senate with a lot of vulnerable candidates. there's been a little rumbling of that. nothing more than a web ad from the right attacking o'connell for negotiating with obama on the debt deal. he hired rand paul's delegate. so mcconnell loves politics. he's not letting anything go to chance here. on the larger point of karl rove, yes, there's a question about how to get candidates who can actually win in these races. republicans feel like they have control of the senate if they'd run smarter races. >> john dickerson, thanks. a billion dollar is up for grabs and some of it could be

ñáçwçñ millions of-americans find that billions of benefits are not being paid out. with more we welcome mellody hobson. good morning. >> good morning. >> how does this happen? >> it's a crazy thing but it happens because the beneficiaries don't file a clachlt most insurers agree that the onus is on the beneficiary and they have no lool obligation to find you if you're a
7:40am
beneficiary. >> they also found that they're collecting premiums even after someone has died. >> yeah. >> how does that happen? >> this is a little crazy and a little snarky. what they do is if they have an annuity where you put up an investment account with them they're paying you every month. they reconcile with the social security desk master files but they don't do that on the life insurance side because because they kind of don't want to know that you died so that way they can keep the premiums coming until they find out that you've passed away. so that i had two different systems inside the same company, and the state insurers figured that out when they did audits and said this didn't work. >> yeah whose fault is this? you've got to be smart about knowing that if one of your loved one dies you have to take the initiative. >> you're not going to like my answer on this. the ultimate responsibility lies with the beneficiary and they
7:41am
have to know they're on the policy. so it sounds so mundane, but so many people don't tell their loved ones where the policy is what the company is, and they're actually a named beneficiary. as a result of that they're clueless. then the person passes away and in times of great emotional stress they're trying to figure this out. so again the insurance company will send a letter or two, but that's not or responsibility. >> so do the insurance companies consider this a minor problem or a big problem? >> they consider it a minor problem, which, again, is going to surprise you. >> they get to keep all the money. >> that's billion dollars a year that doesn't get paid out, the average claim being about $2,000. here's the issue. against the backdrop of what they pay out every year they pay out about $58 billion in life insurance policy. this billion dollars is 2% of what they pay out. for them this is small change.
7:42am
>> when you list the beneficiary is to let them know you have listed them and make sure they have the right inform snoogs know where your policy is. realize when you get older you're not going to realize these things. know the policies of parents, loved ones, aunts. make sure that beneficiary information is updated. i talk to insurance brokers who just write in a name no, address, no other contact information. that really doesn't work. >> mellody hobson. welcome.

7:58am
it's 8:00. welcome back to "cbs this morning." police officers gunned down in california overnight the suspect, a former officer fired from his job already wanted in a double murder. and doctor say we'll have
7:59am
three times as many alzheimer's patients by 2050. that will be a huge challenge to the health care system. we'll look at the impact of that. but first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. a massive man hunt is underway here in southern california. >> a former police officer wanted for double murder is accused of shooting two police officers early this morning killing one of them. >> this is a man hunt like none other. you're looking for a highly trained naval officer who's been through the lapd academy. the east coast gearing up for a major snowstorm. some parts of new england are bracing for up to two feet. cbs news has learned an american airline is close to a merger with u.s. airways creating the world's largest airline. the real bottom line is whether the unions are going to get along. remember, they signed secret deals with u.s. airways that they wanted to work with them as well. the top counter terrorism expert is going to capitol hill
8:00am
john brennan. ashley judd an obama following hollywood radical liberal. >> why target someone who hasn't said they're running. >> brooklyn has many things. this you don't normally see, a goat on the run in a parking lot. >> you're into this story. >> i am into the story. i'll take it. >> charles is taking the goat. turning now to a serious story in california. we begin with breaking news in southern california. two riverside police officers have been shot in an ambush one officer was killed. >> the suspect himself is a former officer fired from his job at the lapd. he was already wanted for a doubling murder. john miller is with us. john, good morning. this is a dangerous developing situation. what are they doing to track him down? >> well this case has been
8:01am
taken over by lapd's elite robbery homicide division. they've imemployed sis. that's a tactical surveillance team. they can make themselves invisible and appear very quickly. they're also very heavily armed. they carry 4-4 semi-automatic rifles, semi-automatic pistols and this is kind of what they do confronting violent criminals in the act. but this whole story is a bit of an anomaly because your violent criminal is a trained police officer and trained military officer. >> so what are they exactly going to try to do to get him? i mean is it a search more extensive than anything they've ever done? >> you know usually you're searching for a target who's on the run for you. this is very different charlie. he's bringing the fight to them. he has shown up at locations where body guards have been deployed to protect people on his target list and open fire on the officers protecting those people. so this is almost a manhunt in reverse. instead of going after him,
8:02am
which they'll do anyway, they also have to be prepared for him to come at them. you don't see that much. >> quickly, what's his motivation? >> he was fired by the lapd for lying in a hearing where he had accused another officer of misconduct. he wants to get back at everybody for that firing he's very clear about that. >> how long do you think this will go on? >> this -- i mean this could go on for days. i don't think longer than that. and i can't predict it's going to end very well. >> john miller thanks. iran captured a cia drone two years ago. iran claims to have video taken by that aircraft. iranian state tv carried that video. it shows an airport and city said to be kandahar afghanistan. u.s. officials say the drone malfunctioned and was forced to land in iran. they have not commented. yesterday we heard a former white house doctor say that new jersey governor chris christie is bound to have a heart attack or stroke if he does not lose
8:03am
weight. as elaine quijano reports. >> reporter: by wednesday chris christie was fed up with the weight debate. >> she should probably be the surgeon general of the united states, i suspect, because she must be a genius. listen, this is just another hack that wants five minutes on. >> reporter: chris christie took offense to dr. connie mariano. she served as bill clinton's physician. >> i'm a republican. i like chris christie. i want him to run. i worry about this man dying in office. >> my children saw that last night and she sat there on tv and said i'm afraid he's going to die in office. my 12-year-old son comes to me last night and said dad, are you going to die? if she wants to come to a plane to new jersey and wants to review my medical history and
8:04am
have a conversation, i'll have a conversation with her. until that time she should shut up. >> reporter: dr. mariano talked on anderson cooper. >> i understand he talked to you. >> out of deference to him, i'm not going to comment but i can only share with you that that phone conversation, when i think of it the words gracious and appreciative do not come to mind. >> reporter: christie says that he cares about his health and always has a plan to trim down. >> in terms of people in the state being concerned about whether or not it prevents me from being able to do my job effectively, i think they've seen the results of that. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," elaine quijano, new york. what do we think about this? >> i think the governor knows that he has a weight problem. >> yes. >> but you know it's difficult to hear when someone says something like that certainly for his children to hear. >> i think that's the problem. you know that your child sees on the news that you're possibly going to die, that's very upsetting to a child.
8:05am
governor christie has said he knows he needs to lose weight. >> she could have said i'm concerned about his health not die in office. >> there is a way to say it. you're right, charlie. now to another rising star in the republican party, florida senator marco rubio. he will deliver the gop's response to president obama's state of the union address next week. rubio is featured on the coverage of "time magazine." the 41-year-old cuban american plans to deliver his address in english and spanish. he's being tauted as a possible candidate in 2016. there's new criticism over big changes by the u.s. postal service. they say ending saturday mail delivery goes too far. nancy cordes broke the story. good morning. >> good morning, nora. this plan is getting a lot of criticism, predictably. predictably from rural lawmakers and from the letter carriers union. they were worried about layoffs. the postmaster general said he can end saturday service without
8:06am
cutting jobs he can just cut overtime allow more retirement but, still, he's going to face a fight. >> reporter: the postal service's plan to cut saturday delivery came as no surprise to many americans. >> i think it's a real good thing. i think they should have done it years ago. >> but not everyone is giving it their stamp of approval. >> it will affect me. mail that comes on saturdays, i would miss that yes. >> it's vital. i don't think they should change it. >> reporter: those same sentiments are echoed by some on capitol hill. democratic senator mark begvich of alaska said it's bad news for those who rely on timely deliveries. bernie sanders of vermont said it would move the post technical service into a death spiral while doing very little to improve the financial conditions. republican house speaker john boehner sympathized with the decision. >> i think trying to act in this postal area is pretty difficult,
8:07am
but i understand where the postal commission is coming from. >> reporter: under the new plan delivery for all mail would be cut back to five days a week except for packages mail order medicine, and express mail. post offices now open on saturdays would remain open. >> it's either change some of the service or raise prices and people don't want prices raised. we'll make the changes in service. >> reporter: the postmaster general said it will save an estimate 2d billion a year. that will do little to stop the financial bleeding of an operation that lost $16 billion a year. >> we do not take any tax money. our revenues pay for what we do. we need to act sponges sib bli with good common sense and that's what we're doing. >> reporter: there is a question about whether this plan is even legal. technically the postal service needs approval from congress if it wants to cut service, but the postmaster general says he is moving ahead no matter what and
8:08am
he just hopes congress will stand in the way. nora charlie, gayle. >> nancy, thank you. cbs news has learned lance armstrong will be sued today by a company that paid him $12 million. sea paid him bonuses. the new york sometimes said armstrong is now considering testifying before the u.s. anti-doping agency. he has been given a two-week extension to come forward or his lifetime ban will be implemented. a survey by the american psychological association shows 20% of americans report extreme stress. that's down from 24% in 2010. last year one out of four said they managed stress by eating. that's down from 34% in 2008. and the number of people turning to alcohol has gone down to just 13%. nelson mandela's granddaughters say the former south african president is in good health and good spirits.

. president obama is speaking this morning at the national prayer breakfast. it's a white house tradition going back to dwight eisenhower. some 3,000 people from 140 countries are in the audience today. welcome back to "cbs this morning." a new study suggests the number of alzheimer's patients could triple by 2050. dr. murali doraiswamy is from duke university. why these alarming numbers going up? >> it's what we call the silver tsunami. three reasons. one is the graying of america, the big rise in people 65 plus. the numbers are expected to double so as we get better at treating heart disease, cancer as we live longer the consequences, we may be at risk for alzheimer's. >> is there anything we can do to prevent it? >> there's no magic bullet right now, but there are several trials of experimental treatments underway but there
8:15am
are a lot of things we can do to try to reduce our risk. for example, the single biggest risk for alzheimer's i think is strokes and vascular risk factors. so being heart healthy, exercising, trying to eat sort of a diet that's not too fatty, low saturated fats and also keeping yourself mentally active and socially active all of these are things that each one of us can do. >> you talk about this silver tsunami. how is our health care system going to be able to handle these cases? >> it's pretty scary. we are broke and we are going to go from being broke to being really broke. it's expected to add $2 trillion to our health care budget. the number of family caregivers is going to go from 50 million people right now to maybe about 60 million. so it's very scary. when you talk about being mentally active, what exactly does that mean? the other day i forgot the name of a singer who i know very very well. honestly, i could not remember. when should i be concerned?
8:16am
>> we have a saying in our field, if you cannot remember what you forgot that's what you need to be concerned. the first thing i would ask you, did the information come back at a later point? >> an hour later. >> that's no problem. that's how we discern alzheimer's from benign forgetfulness. >> this morning i had benign forgetfulness. >> multi-tasking forgetfulness. the reason for catching alzheimer's early is that there are many potential causes that could be reverse i believe, such as depression thyroid problems vitamin deficiencies. it's important for people to know that because otherwise they're in denial and they don't seek attention. >> one of the most important things i've heard in preventing alzheimer's is physical activity, keeping the blood moving. your brain is getting a lot of blood. then your brain doesn't develop gray material. is that right, physical activity? >> yes. a robe bins -- aerobic exercise
8:17am
is great for the brain. there is evidence that a walk a day can keep alzheimer's away. it's not 100%. there is a big trial underway to test it but i strongly recommend it. >> a walk a day and an apple. >> you wouldn't need me. >> thank you for coming. thank you so much. >> pleasure. if you think some dogs are smarter than they get credit for, you know what you are absolutely right. >> hey. >> hey. they might even be geniuses. that kind of looks like barclay. >> that does. he's a genius, i can tell you that. >> no bias from charlie rose. we'll show you why ahead on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs "healthwatch" >> announcer: "cbs healthwatch" brought to you by bayer aspirin. take charge of your heart at i am pro heart.com. impro baum. before you begin an aspirin regimen. i didn't know this could happen so young. take control talk to your doctor.

8:32am
equalizing one another and the game turned out to be on the other. points score were acceptable so the yas knows did well as a result of that. >> my mama always told me that casinos always win. >> yes. >> over long periods of time your mama's right. >> let me turn to entitlements. you have thought seriously about this because most corporate ceos have to think about entitlements. >> right. >> what do you have to say that will help the president and the country understand the challenge? >> well, charlie, the motivation for this is the government's budget is in very rough shape as we all know and entitlements like medicare and social kurt eat that up now. if we're going to dras this problem we have to do something about these two programs particularly medicare. so what we suggested is there are modest modifications to these programs that will phase in other a long period of too that would address to a very large degree the problems that these programs have caused and
8:33am
think caused relatively little inconvenience or harm to those folks over time who had received these modifications. >> and you're also focusing on immigration. you have strong feelings that and i want to know what you think about the president's proposal for immigration. but i want to know gary how did you become one of the people that is advising the president? >> i'm not sure i'm advising him. they do seek counsel from a handful. i'm not a big advocate for one party or the other, i'm just deeply interested in certain issues. in the case of immigration reform, both i think, for normative reasons and because the economy's so weak we need to solve the problem the country faces and i think the president and to a lesser degree the senate have come forward with a proposal that will do that. >> everybody thinks we need a solution. the question is what is the solution. do you think there should be a path way to citizen ship? >> i mean certainly in nevada there are undocumented workers.
8:34am
>> i think we do. i think we need to resolve the issues favorably. > as a ceo door you want to do e-verify? there are a lot of people who say i don't want to -- we are helping. >> you are. >> yes. >> that's one of the things in senator rubio's partnershiportfolios. and you think they want to do that us that ba us they want verified employees? >> absolutely. >> i don't know quite how to handle that delicately as perhaps we should. i certainly don't oppose the notion that there be sequencing of people who have cued up under circumstances and those who find themselves here otherwise. >> one last question about entitlements. would you be in favor of raising the age of it by two or four years as well as medicare? >> both. >> we have another big story. all i keep thinking about is hurricane sandy. your area was hard hit. how are they doing? >> they remain very tough. they operate casinos in atlantic
8:35am
city. of course, our employees do as well and it's been tough. so we've certainly continued to feel it. revenues are off as people are not in a position to pursue entertainment or leisure time. >> i'm just thinking the last thing we need now is another big monster storm snow you're absolutely right about that. the new research shows that dogs are not only intelligent but able to adapt like few other animals around the world. if you have a dog, you know that's true. don't you, charlie? >> yes, gayle. >> it goes inside the mind of man's best friend. it's called "genius dogs." how dogs are smarter than you think. rebecca jarvis shows us how they'll help us in the future. >> reporter: he's been running tests on dogs like sisu a 3-year-old black lab to find out how their brains process information. by placing two cups in front of
8:36am
sisu, one with food one without, he can observe how canines react to human gestures. >> so what we're going to do is if sisu is using her memory to find food or if she's more using your communication or gestures. >> sisu come take the food. okay, sisu. so she's got a good memory. >> reporter: if your dog chooses the empty cup, through games like these they make decisions in how to be successful in life in this case finding food. >> we just played a bunch of games we played with human infapts with dogs and discovered they're add good as kids. >> reporter: basically as coolgood as kids? dogs are.
8:37am
hearsays they understand. >> most people thing chimpanzees, monkeys that ier the ones most similar to humans. are they? >> grade apes are the closest genetic relative and in many ways the way their psychology operates it's very, very similar to us. but in some ways it's really different. they're not very good at reading in a flexible way gestural communications. >> reporter: in an effort to wind his raefrp he and his teammates have started this. the dognition breaks it downs. the maverick is known as being fiercely independent. dog owner and trainer jan merritt put her australian
